I won a give away, that Carol of "Buttercup Counts her Blessings" had upon her return home. This is a wonderful gift. Carol had gone to Australia from NYC where she lives.
This cute tea towel of 100 % cotton. Embroidered with a koala bear. Too cute to use.(smile)
Carol also included this post card of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
Plus a magnet with a copy of indigenous art by Julieanne Turner.
So I wanted to share this sweet gift with all of you. Thank you Carol. Oh by the way, go visit Carol's blog . She will take you on walking trips throughout NYC. I always love to see the stores, shops, museums, and parks of NYC. This sweet lady never sits still long. :)
Have to show this sunset from Sunday evening on our way home from town. It's the Midwest, always power/telephone poles in the pictures. LOL.
We had flurries yesterday mixed with sunshine at times. :) Today is sunny and cold. I know, I know, I should never complain after what everyone in the east is going thru. Forgive me. I wish you all some sunny days and relief from this bitter March. XO
Congrats on winning the giveaway Susie! Very nice items!ReplyDelete
Pilar, It is fun to get something in the mail from a fellow blogger. Carol sure shows some nice views on her blog. She has traveled the world. Hope you are having some good weather now. it was sunny all day here. :) Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
How nice of Carol to send you those treasures from her trip, Susie! I know what you mean about the snow...lol. Love your pretty sunset photo. Hope all is well with you, my friend.ReplyDelete
Hi Debbie, I am so happy to hear from you. I hope you are enjoying life ...soon we will be able to get in our flowerbeds and maybe grow something pretty. I have been enjoying my great grands so much. Wasn't that a wonderful gift from Carol? She just returned to NYC and had the give away and I was happy to win. It's summer in that part of the world ...so she came home to those horrid storms. Blessings to you my forever friend, love you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Susie, what sweet gifts. The sunset is beautiful even with the power lines. Thank heavens for them but we just can't get away from them. I can't find any reason to complain about our weather either, even though I might say different at times..Happy Day..xxoJudyReplyDelete
Judy, As bad as I felt our weather was at times, I know darn good and well we were blessed here in Indiana. I love getting sunset photos, would love the sunrises but would have to drive around for those as the woods down the road most often blocks them for me. Hope you are getting better weather, we need to get outside. :) Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
What a nice gift from your blog friend, Susie. It's so fun receiving goodies in the mail, especially from someone so far away.ReplyDelete
Beautiful sunset, Susie. A lot of gold in the skies. : )
Sheri, I loved getting mail , and the gifts make it even more exciting. I just thought it was so kind of Carol too. I am getting happy thinking about the warmer weather being so close now. Six days till spring !! Blessings to you , love, xoxo, SusieDelete

Hi Karen, I was excited when I got the mail and found these sweet gifts. Carol has a wonderful blog. I like being shown around the Big Apple on her blog. Oh yes, Spring is only 6 days away...we soon will be enjoying flowers and time outside. Take care , we want to be safe and well when it gets here. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
It's so much fun to win something special like that! I've been missing fetting to visit you lately but I'm back now! I'm still tired from the weekend. When the kids left yesterday at noon, I went back to bed and took a nap. I'm about to taken another nap right now. Naps fix everything!ReplyDelete
Linda, Honestly, I do not know how you do it...you seems like a powerhouse of womankind . I get exhausted reading about what all you and LD do...two of the working-est people around. I would love to take a nap...I had one last year when I was sick. LOL. Blessings to you, love you and LD, xoxo, SusieDelete

Thank you Diana. These newer darker mornings are an effort for me to get out of my warm bed. LOL. I love having sunshine later.

Congratulations on your giveaway win! What fun gifts! We're sunny and cold here too, but I wouldn't trade it for east coast weather. Yikes! They must be so discouraged. Have a wonderful weekend, Susie. - JudyReplyDelete
Congrats on your winnings! I think I got my act together and properly published my blog entry. You may know that we got a bit of snow.ReplyDelete
